    Default How long is your bully left alone for at one time?

    My baby is left for about 9 hours, but he does have the run of the house. Is that too long? My mom does come over once during the day to let him out to the potty. I worry about my baby's happiness. Don't want him to be too bored.

    I personally don't think that dogs have a good concept of time. My dogs act like (happy) idiots, whether I am gone 6 hours, or 1/2 hour. It is great that your Mom comes and lets him out for a break during the day..which I think helps tremendously as far as potty, and
    breaking up his day! If he's not destroying the house while you're gone-I'd say he's pretty content! Yay for your Mom! @BuddercupKelly

    We leave at 630- they go in their crates. My neighbor comes and let's them out between 3-4, then I get home at 5. I'm pretty sure they sleep most of the day bc on the weekends, during the time we would normally be gone, they are usually napping.

    Thank you. Yeah, my mom is pretty awesome and loves Dozer as much as I do. She has a dog but my Dozer is something special. She will tell you that. LOL. Anyway, he is a good boy while I'm gone, so I guess he will be ok.

    Tyson is home alone anywhere from 6-8 hours.. during the week. Just depends on our schedules. He sleeps the entire time.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Our babies are crated and are alone about 6 hours when our pet sitter comes for mid-day potty break... then I am home about 4-5 hours later.

    I think they adjust to you as they get older , a pup might be different they can find trouble . Mine were always if we were not home in a crate and they did not mind that it seems , they were happy we were home but no ill effects , they lived like us for the weekends for the drive in those days to the cottage as they had the run of the place for 2 days and nights , we would go off hiking or on the pontoon boat or just have a smoars party at the fire pit lol
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    I have left Chunky for 12hrs a day for a few weeks straight and my neighbor was coming by to let him out supposedly once per day but I have a feeling chunky was out with him a lot more than that. If chunky had a grandpa it would have to be that guy.

    I stay at home, but I'm still gone for a couple of hours at a time. They sleep while I'm here, so I don't think you should feel guilty about leaving them for longer hours. As long as they get some playtime when you get home, I think that they will be happy!!!
